European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,

Hypertension is one of the serious systemic diseases that may cause general systemic changes, which is often reflected in the oral cavity. It has conflicting results in salivary changes among patient with hypertension; an increase, decrease or no alteration in salivary pH, flow rate can be identified.
The purpose of the present study was to examine the association of hypertension with salivary flow rate and ph. level. Hence this study was to investigate flow rate in stimulated saliva in hypertensive patients.
Hypertension is one of the serious systemic diseases affecting all populations in the world. Hence this study investigates salivary changes in hypertensive patient.
Hence in this study the salivary flow rate is increased in hypertensive patient between the age groups 60-70. The overall range of ph is 25, systolic and diastolic are same 25.
